Affliction is not necessarily due to sin
Affliction is not necessarily the Lord’s judgement
It may be a refining or testing of faith –Job 1:8-12

Than much refined gold! –1Pe 1:6-8;Rev 3:18

… when you can’t see evidence of Him?
… when no miracles appear?
… when the Lord doesn’t answer as you expect? –Job 1:21-22

11 My foot has held fast to His steps; His ways have I kept and not turned aside.
